The “Kid-Powered Style” Activation at CAMP Columbus Circle Lets Kids Discover Sustainability and Style Through Play

Global retailer H&M and CAMP, The Family Experience Company, announced a partnership designed to inspire kids to be active change-makers and learn about sustainability through a new interactive style experience at CAMP’s Columbus Circle store in Manhattan.

  • H&M and CAMP invite families to experience the new “Kid-Powered Style” activation from July 13th through September 5th, exclusively at CAMP.
  • The activation features two exciting experiences for customers including The Style Cabin and The Upcycler.
  • Inspired by H&M’s kid’s assortment and the brand’s ongoing mission to provide fashion in a sustainable way, families are invited to upcycle materials into stylish toys and accessories in The Style Cabin.
  • Located outside the cabin, The Upcycler is a pedal-powered cycling station that encourages families to convert their kinetic energy into real change. Families will work together to pedal and earn miles in support of a donation to Project Learning Tree.

“Sustainability is central to the way we design products and do business at H&M, and we are always looking for fun and engaging ways to educate our shoppers on how they can make a difference.” said Lauren Riezman, Head of Communications for H&M Americas. “Our Kid-Powered Style experience is a great way to do just this; it was designed to inspire and teach kids about sustainability and its connection to fashion through play. CAMP is a true leader in experiential retail for young families, and a perfect partner to bring our vision for this program to life.”

Families will enjoy a two-part sustainability activation at CAMP all summer long. In The H&M Style Cabin, families will bring in their own clothes to upcycle or grab an H&M tote to create adorable crafts and stylish accessories alongside CAMP’s very own counselors. Guests are encouraged to bring leftover fabric scraps and unused clothing to garment collecting boxes located in H&M stores.

Just outside of the H&M Style Cabin is The Upcycler, a pedal-powered interactive experience where up to 3 people can race for change, either on a foot- or hand -pedaled cycle made of refurbished bikes and recycled materials. Families will pedal towards a collective goal that triggers a donation to Project Learning Tree.

“We are the play experts and love building partnerships that combine the magic of play with social impact” said Nicole Sander, CAMP’s SVP of Strategic Growth and Partnerships. “This experience is designed to make upcycling fun and accessible; families will leave feeling empowered to make sustainable fashion choices in their everyday lives. We are thrilled to be partnering with H&M on this stylish and fun experience!”

Families can also download this digital activity book filled with fun, new sustainably-inspired crafts to create a brighter, more stylish future. Kids can create Rain Boot Planters and No Sew Sock Buddies to enjoy at home this summer, expanding the reach of this impactful program.
